I Did't Know I Was Pregnant

The other night I was channel surfing and came across a show called "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant." Many things about that show baffle me, not the least of which there have been enough women to not know they were pregnant to make a show. Secondly, which part was confusing to you? The lack of a period for 9 months? The fact that you gained a ton of weight without trying? Or, I don't know, how about the human being moving inside of your abdomen? Today, I am about 7 weeks pregnant and was certain that I was knocked up about 3 weeks ago, before the plus sign even appeared on the test. Here is how I knew.

-the fact that my non-existent, deflated water balloon boobs were becoming re-inflated.

-the unprompted, hysterical sobbing during episodes of Glee (Quinn had the baby! Rachel's mom adopted her! So gut-wrenching.)

-waking up on my parents' couch at 8:30 PM, having fallen asleep 30 minutes earlier.

-suddenly gagging at the smell of coffee and when changing my daughter's diaper (ok, that one's not that much of a stretch).

-the fact that my skin looks like a "before" picture in a Proactiv commercial.

I love being pregnant and know what a blessing it is, so none of this is a complaint. I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I'm pretty sure I will never say "I didn't know I was pregnant!"


  1. I've seen that show too. Crazy! I can understand not knowing for a little while.....but the entire 9 months! no way. Congrats on your pregnancy and for figuring it out before you were in labor ;)

  2. I was just talking about this with my husband the other day- it baffles me as well. I was just like you-knew right away, especially by the time I had my third child- I knew I pregnant even before the boob fairy came and I was throwing up. So strange how someone couldn't know.

  3. ps. Congratulations on your new pregnancy! Very exciting.

  4. That was hilarious! I don't know how anyone can NOT know.

  5. Congrats on your pregnancy!

    I think you have to be in complete denial or something not to know your pregnant.....something just doesnt add up.
